Yesterday, I was trying to add another chapter to the manuscript I'm working on. Usually, I can do this when my kids are in school, and all is relatively quiet. Now that it's summer, it's a bit more challenging. As I sat down to write, a certain five foot tall individual came into the room with his radio blasting.
"Bubba," I said. "Can you please go somewhere else? I'm trying to write, and I can't do it with music on."
"What if I change the station? I can put classical music on for you."
I shook my head. "No, Bubba. I can't listen to any music. Even classical. It's too distracting."
He parked himself next to me. "What are you writing about?"
"Right now, I'm writing about a tsunami, and it's destroying the town."
He nodded. Then he got up with his radio and left.
Good, I thought. A little peace!
Unfortunately, it was short-lived. Bubba came back with his radio. And it was playing something else.
I listened. "Bubba, what is that?"
He grinned. "The sound of ocean waves. It'll help you write about tsunamis!"
Where did he find the sound of ocean waves? I don't think I've ever heard that station.ReplyDelete
It was a CD. I have a couple of those relaxing sounds CDs. I needed them when my kids were little. :)Delete
HA! My son goes to sleep with a relaxation cd like that.ReplyDelete
I love the sound of ocean waves!Delete
he is kinda like a pest, isn't he?ReplyDelete
Haha! At times, he can be. But I love him anyway!Delete
How cute. Not many kids would have thought about trying to find a sound to help you write about tsunamis.ReplyDelete
That's the way my boy thinks!Delete
I'm suddenly feeling very short. I'm a couple inches past 5" but because he's still just a kid and I'm almost 22, I feel vertically challenged.ReplyDelete
He's catching up to you. And me! ;0) (My daughter has already passed me up by a couple of inches. She's 14 and 5'6".)Delete
Good one Bubba! He's so clever!ReplyDelete
Yes, he is!Delete
His heart's in the right place.ReplyDelete
Yes, it is!Delete
He certainly is an adorabe boy, he did have your interest at heart.ReplyDelete
He was just trying to help!Delete
Did it help? At least it wasn't music.ReplyDelete
Haha. Right. I didn't think of that. It wasn't music! (No, it didn't really help.) :)Delete
Oh what a delightful lad.ReplyDelete
He certainly is!Delete
lol at least he was thinking. Not sure where he found the sound of waves thoughReplyDelete
On a CD. I'm actually surprise he found it. Wouldn't it be funny if a radio station played wave sounds? That would be great!Delete
That's one bright boyReplyDelete
He really is! His imagination and creativity really amaze me.Delete
He's a card, Sherry. I love Bubba tales.ReplyDelete
He's one of the funniest kids I know!Delete
Smart.. and really quite thoughtful!ReplyDelete
happy writing :)
I'm amazed by how his mind works!Delete
That's so clever of Bubba to bring you that soundtrack for inspiration.ReplyDelete
He's always thinking.Delete
You know, he's very sweet for a pest :)ReplyDelete
Yes, he is! :)Delete
Babu speaks with reasons every time.ReplyDelete
He's so logical, isn't he? :)Delete
He really wanted to help you outReplyDelete
He did good. The tsunami chapter is now complete.Delete
Not sure I'd find this helpful. A friend bought me a tape of 'water music' and all it did was make me want to go to the toilet. Still it thoughtful and sweet of your son.ReplyDelete
Haha! That's funny! Good thing I hadn't had something to drink before listening to his wave music. :)Delete
